I have not done what you're considering, but I did send a '68 Z28 to UK to drive while I was marooned there. Interesting process, but would not attempt to do so again knowing what I know now.

The Welt delivers new cars to many Europeans besides Germans; the MD of my company in UK took delivery of his new 6 at the Welt. I recall US ED deliveries to be less than 10% of the total.

I have studded Hakka's on the X5 and think it could climb an icy tree. These aren't your father's studded tires; they're very quiet and no problem running 80-90 mph when conditions allow.
